Azhar Arsyad

Abstract


ABSTRACT
The article shall discuss how violence in every form of life will get anybody nowhere and how the call for peace and tranquillity should be implemented by each mankind wherever he lives and wherever they as a group may reside. Hence, peaceful values in global perspective are of great significance. The questions which may be raised are what do we need to have and what do we need to know prior to talking about peace and tranquillity. The other questions which may spur are how to implement peace and what makes peace fail and tranquillity never becomes a reality. The answer to those questions will become an elaboration of the gist of this presentation. Historically and spiritually speaking, peace will not be realized if the reason of failure to achieve peace
has not been made aware and known to mankind. Albeit various advice and directions have been given, peace shall not be realized. This is due to the fact that the advice and directions given have not met the substance of the cause and have not been able to provide a comprehensive solution to peace itself. The substances of this paper, therefore, will try to prove how the need to recognizing and understanding the ‘Voice of the Heart’ as ‘inner-soul’ and ‘inner capacity’ themselves will become an essential thing to be realized by every individual.

ABSTRAK
Makalah ini membincangkan bagaimana implikasi keganasan dalam setiap sudut
kehidupan tidak membawa ke mana-mana dan bagaimana tuntutan untuk keamanan dan kesejahteraan kepada umat manusia perlu dilaksanakan di mana sahaja mereka berada. Dengan itu, perspektif global tentang nilai keamanan amat diperlukan. Antara persoalan yang timbul adalah apa yang perlu ada dan kita tahu sebelum membicarakan tentang keamanan dan kesejahteraan. Seterusnya bagaimana keamanan dapat diraih dan apa punca yang menyebabkan keamanan dan kesejahteraan tidak dapat direalisasikan. Jawapan kepada setiap persoalan tersebut menjadi intipati perbincangan masalah ini. Berdasarkan sejarah dan nilai kemanusiaan, keamanan tidak dapat dicapai sekiranya punca yang menyebabkan ia gagal, tidak disedari dan diketahui oleh manusia walaupun pelbagai nasihat dan petunjuk telah diberikan/nyata, keamanan belum pasti dapat dicapai. Ini adalah kerana nasihat dan petunjuk
yang diberikan tidak selari dengan intipati penyebab ia berlaku serta tidak berupaya memberi penyelesaian menyeluruh kearah mencapai keamanan. Intipati makalah ini cuba menjelaskan bahawa perlunya mengetahui dan memahami ‘suara hati’ yang merangkumi entiti ‘jiwa dalaman’ dan ‘keupayaan dalaman diri’ sebagai perkara yang amat penting untuk difahami oleh setiap manusia.
